Skirts and Ties – Lent

Skirts and Ties: A temporary art installation in hall

Monday 26th January to Sunday 1st February

Suspended from the “Minstrels’ Gallery,” this installation is an update of last term’s and represents the gender balance of matriculating Pembroke students during the current academic year. This year, 119 women (52.9%) and 106 men (47.1%) students matriculated at Pembroke. This piece represents that ratio through the display of 21 skirts and 19 ties. All the materials have been donated, and the piece created, by current Pembroke undergraduate and graduate students. This installation is being renewed at intervals throughout the course of the 2014-15 academic year, reflecting the changing gender balance of the College throughout the years.
